Pillar Ventures is the new property arm of the Blenheim Chalcot Group. In line with the group’s philosophy, at Pillar we look at real estate investment from a business angle, creating more opportunity and greater value for our equity partners.
While a property’s fundamentals are important to us, we put equal focus on the people who use and enjoy our spaces. The experience of being in our buildings — from design to atmosphere — is strategically planned. Functionality and efficiency are crucial and technology is in our DNA.
With these fundamental characteristics in mind we strive to create businesses around our properties, enhancing their value and creating long-term operating platforms.
As part of the Blenheim Chalcot Group we directly and indirectly benefit from the ecosystem of companies around us. Blenheim Chalcot brings unrivalled expertise in building successful, long-lasting businesses.
